Vail Resorts Extends Season Pass Discounts
SAM Magazine-Broomfield, Colo., May 13, 2011-Vail Resorts is extending its discounted prices on 2011-2012 season passes until May 30. The discounts, introduced on Apr. 15, were initially set to expire on May 8.
The discounts apply to all of the company's pass products, including the Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Epic 7-Day, Summit Value Pass and Tahoe Value Pass. Customers can make a $49 down payment to lock in the discounted rates, with the balance due in mid-September.
Discounted rates include $629 for the Epic Pass (previously priced at $649), good for unrestricted skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar-at-Tahoe and Arapahoe Basin; and $389 for the Summit Value Pass (previously $409), good for unrestricted skiing at Keystone and Arapahoe Basin and access to Breckenridge with limited restrictions.
The company is also introducing a new Tahoe Value Pass ($359) offering seven day a week access to Heavenly and six days a week access to at Northstar. With this pass, holders can purchase access to either resort on restricted days for $50 per day.
A variety of other pass products are also being offered by the company, including a $20 season pass insurance program which covers passholders in the event of unexpected events including sickness, injuries and job loss-although the latter might be an excuse to go skiing more, not less.
